Launched a year ago, Corgi Technical Services has reported on the success of its Compliance Document Management System (CDMS), developed to seamlessly link into housing providers’ gas and electrical compliance workflow processes.
CDMS reads any electronic documents produced by any third-party data-capture or certificating software without the need for direct integration. Using artificial intelligence (AI), the engine behind CDMS understands and maps compliance documents and then performs calculations to validate and verify compliance (green/compliant, amber/compliant with warnings, or red/non-compliant).
Lee Woods, compliance hub manager, Your Housing Group, said, “With CDMS and as the overall team manager, I now deploy these highly-skilled members of staff towards actually administering the gas contracts.”
CDMS includes a client-configurable tagging system that enables the extraction of keywords direct from the client’s documents, resulting in the ability to run more advanced queries, such as showing all documents created by one particular engineer, those with a dangerous installation, makes, models, locations of appliances, smoke or CO alarms installed and any documents without appropriate signatures.
Corgi reported that most users of the CDMS software had also used it to cleanse and validate their historic asset data, compliance benchmarks and engineering performance.
Martin Simmonds, senior services officer, Dudley Council, said, “The Corgi software has significantly simplified the process for checking documents and has helped streamline resources. Some of the main benefits of the system for us include the capability to run tailored compliance reports, drilling down into individual records, and the ability to check certification quickly.”
